Fun Periodic Table Song
An update on the original famous version which existed many years ago - here are some fun pictures and a song to go with it - it might even help you to remember some of the periodic table and what the various elements are useful for ! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zUDDiWtFtEM&feature=youtu.be

SI Units and Index Notation / Using Decimals - Measurement

Index Notation
This comes up in all the courses so if you are not sure about why 0.1 is written as 1 x 10-1 then click here http://www.mathsisfun.com/index-notation-powers.html

SI Units
You should know about the SI units of measurement and mass - here is an explanation :
The Système International d'Unités (SI), is the list of units which measurements are based on in the metric system and which are used by scientists to have a standard when carrying out experiments.

For example the basic unit of length that is used is metres (m), time is measured in seconds (s), mass has a base unit of kilograms (kg), thermodynamic temperature is measured in kelvins (K),  amount of substance is taken as the mole (mol).


This video may help you to change units :

Amazon Recommended Titles

The Amazon widget below shows some recommended books for various Chemistry and Biology courses. If you order a book via this link it is possible I may earn a very small amount of money from this ! Just to warn you. This is called an affiliate link. If you prefer to avoid this then just access Amazon without using my widget or buy your book elsewhere such as from an Independent bookseller. You may get some books second hand via ebay but this year with so many new courses, this might not be so easy. Just watch out that you buy the correct title of book and not one that applies to the older courses.
